History

In 2009, Chancellor Pam Shockley-Zalabak convened a task force to address the “climate, policies, practices and procedures important for our LGBTQ students, faculty, and staff in support of our UCCS core values.” The task force included campus leadership from a broad range of campus units: faculty, staff, students, and members of the LGBTQ community.

The Pikes Peak Gay and Lesbian Community Center (The PRIDE Center) was an important partner with the LGBTQ Task Force. The Director of the PRIDE Center served on the task force and during this same period of time contracted with UCCS to develop the LGBTQ Resource Center at MOSAIC. The development of the resource center moved forward in parallel with the work of the task force. The LGBTQ Resource Center was coordinated by a part-time Graduate Assistant until 2012 when the position of LGBT Program Director was added to the M.O.S.A.I.C. Assistant Director staff position.
